Lunch Box

Guatemala’s economy does not provide the jobs or income to sustain a decent way of life for most of its population. And that’s why most employment in Guatemala’s economy comes from “informal” jobs market. And ones in a while, these entrepreneurs come out with great ideas like this one.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité

La Semaine de la France, organized in Guatemala by the French Embassy and Alianza Francesa was held from July 6 to July 13. It included a varied program of music, food, literature and fashion. Unfortunately I was able to attend only the last activity: A Bal Francais inspired in popular dances of the streets of France.  For what I saw it was more like an open concert but still it was fun watching people smile, dance and celebrate.

The actvity ended with Calimosho Gypsy Cumbia Band a great musical group, a sneak peak here: http://youtu.be/8up9VGNzJr0

P.D. We posted some months ago about one of the members of the band, Gringo Loco 

Friendship

Friday, May 11th, 2012

And a youth said, “Speak to us of Friendship.”

Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the “nay” in your own mind, nor do you withhold the “ay.”
And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Khalil Gibran
